was at john mccain's birthday party. you have those pictures of him enjoying -- they were playing the guitar and hanging out and then his administration's really horrible response which is ironic because george w. bush's brother, jeb bush, is still popular in florida because of the ee fish ensee with which he would handle florida and a lot of the reason that he is still popular in that state. >> explain the connection between jeb and president obama. >> and president obama very rightly has hired the hurricane spoon guy that jeb bush used in his administration. he was always considered nonpartisan and he was somebody who made jeb look really good and now he's working for fema. he's heading fema for barack obama. >> let's go back to james warren. the question now on the table, here we are the monday before the election, a week out now, it seems to me it's not exactly a time out. for the president is it's a chance to be an executive and for romney to show prudence and recognition as a challenger to the president, not as a president. >> one of his problems is going to be if, in fact, the media i
to obama, iowa is a state where romney will have his best gains in the country where john mccain didn't in 2008. this was a 10 or 11 point race in 2008. now two, three, four would be a lot for obama. you can go back to 2004, bush won a squeaker. in 2000 gore won it by 4,000. iowa is two states. we say it's a progressive tradition. there's a ton of social conservative, religious social conservatives in western iowa and there's also a lot of these white working class middle class voters as a demo brafic have turned hard on obama across the country. iowa, they are particularly pronounced in that state. a lot more for romney to work with. your point is key, i mentioned this last week on the show. in the 1980s iowa was an exception. the national economy was strong. farm economy collapsed in iowa and iowa took it out on george bush sr. we might see the opposite where the economy is weak in a lot of places but stronger in iowa. >> iowa voted for revenge. interesting. >> great reason to vote. >> to your point that's why the social consciences that's why mike huckabee and rick santorum do wel
in half. i've done some math, can you see where mitt romney makes up some six to eight million votes. john mccain lost by ten million votes, he could pick up a whole bunch of votes in the battleground states. let's go to our battleground map. we have the president winning in virginia, wisconsin is a state that just feels on the ground is something that leans toward the president. now you just give him new hampshire, and he sits at 270, that's with giving romney ohio, that's with giving romney florida. that's with giving him iowa. that's with giving him colorado. that's this issue of the battleground versus the popular vote. >> more to come from chuck todd. thank you very much. we'll be back in a couple of minutes with him. i want to get to our battleground governors in a minute. but i want to start around the table with our roundtail. i mentioned rachel maddow is here from msnbc. carly fiorina, david brooks of the "new york times," ej dionne of the "washington post." i feel like the final stretch is going to be dominated by the fight over the economy. it's what ultimately can tip tha scale

voting numbers that they say shows the matching or exceeding what john mccain, where he stood at this time four years ago. they point specifically to ohio, cuyahoga county, they say, coal country, an area traditionally democratic, that they say is not going to go in the president's column this time around. nonetheless, they recognize the significance of ohio right now. they will be back there again on friday. he's going to have governor romney with him. 100 surrogates including a lot of family members, some governors and senators as they try to do that as well. to put this into language of one of the romney top advisers the polls, peter, amount to noise at this point. they still feel as confident as ever that they are exactly where they need to be in these waning days. >> isn't this a time them should be in the northwest, essentially defending southern turf, is that a troublesome time? why shouldn't that be seen as a troublesome time? >> reporter: well, i think you're right. this is all about getting out the vote and they're going to be bouncing across the country. if you noti
then candidate barack obama beat senator john mccain with 52% of the vote in virginia. president obama's win at that time was notable was virginia had backed republicans in every presidential election from dwight eisenhower in 1952 all the way through george w. bush in 2004 except for the lyndon johnson landslide that happened in 1964. that is your history lesson for virginia. bill: early voting is resuming in maryland, it was su suspended for two days. voters turning out in big numbers, many saying they did not want to wait until the last minute. >> it's convenient to get it done ahead of time. i can't speak for other people, but for me one less thing to do next tuesday. >> before the storm i would have said it was the storm. now i think people want to make sure they have an opportunity, you know, to get in and voice their opinion. bill: the early voting hours and days to vote extended in maryland so that may explain why we are seeing a lot of folks there voting early. martha: let's go back to a live look right now at the jersey shore. my goodness, that is the boardwalk in point pleasant wh
, governor jindal, senator rubio and senator john mccain on the stump for romney at the same time. john avalon is in the battleground state of ohio. so john, it's a cavalcade of republican stars. will it help romney? >> they hope so, carol. i mean, this is sort of that last-minute stampede. the romney camp taking the major surrogates in the swing states and that's what they should be doing. this is a game of inches, a war of attrition and the swing states every vote could matter. they put out everything they got. there are six days left in the election. you don't leave anything in the locker room. >> ohio voters, do they have sandy on their minds at all? >> well, there's definitely been bad weather as you may be able to tell throughout ohio all the of sandy and the storm is very dissipated. we have gone to the election polling places open for early election and still packed. no sign of a falloff on that because of the weather. the debates about the economy. the campaign having a tussle right now over chrysler and gm. when biden and clinton koim to youngstown they slammed mitt romney for
against hillary and had the war issue against her, beat her on the war issue, took on john mccain when he was really beaten down by then. and here he is facing romney who is a very tough opponent. so this is going to be a close election. they're somewhat equally matched. like one of those swords and sandals movies, though, each guy has a different weapon. they don't have the same tool kit. but one thing obama has in his tool kit, i'll go back to, is hope. you don't run for president with the name of barack hussein obama without hope. i talked to him recently at the al smith dinner, i can't say what he said, but the guy has confidence, i'll tell you that. he has confidence. something tells him he wins. i don't know what it is. it may be delusion narrary, but does have that confidence. he tells us to be hopeful, maybe this is the week he's got to have hope. like a pitcher in the seventh inning two runs back and has to put everybody out for the next three innings but has to hope the batters will come through and give him some bat. he has to hope, just like the pitcher in the seventh inning.
